The Phuket Banyan Tree Spa
Situated on the white sand shores of Bang Tao Bay on the Andaman Sea, the Banyan Tree Spa has been called the ultimate ‘romantic hideaway’. Though Thailand and especially the island of Phuket are becoming world-renowned for luxury spas, this one is undoubtedly at the top of the list, voted by Conde Nast Traveler as the “World’s Best Spa Resort” and by CNBC Asia as “Best Resort Hotel in Asia”.
The Banyan Tree Spa is situated in a quiet and breathtakingly scenic area, but it is only 20 minutes by car from the Phuket International Airport and 25 minutes from Phuket Town. As part of the first integrated resort in Asia, Laguna Phuket, the Banyan Tree Spa is next to five ultra-luxurious hotels and a wonderful variety of recreational activities and dining adventures. It is also adjacent to a 600-acre parkland and about three kilometres of alluring white sand beaches.
The Banyan Tree offers its guests a choice of seven different plans among the villas, all with at least one private pool and many with additional outdoor whirlpools and private spa facilities. You can dine in your own suite, catered exquisitely by room service, or choose one of the award-winning restaurants such as the Watercourt on one of the six palm-lined lagoons at the resort. The cuisine offered ranges from traditional Thai classics to prime rib, with an outstanding array of fresh fruit, seafood and every other delicacy imaginable.
Soothing, refreshing and invigorating combinations of massage, scrubs, wraps and facials are available in sessions from 45 minutes to a totally pampered seven hours. The treatments are designed to bring total relaxation and both physical and mental well being from head to toe. Techniques include some of those used for hundreds of years in the Royal Thai Palaces, as well as the best of more modern Western innovations. All of them provide an experience you will never forget and long to repeat.
At the Banyan Tree Spa you will play, eat and relax like never before. Whether you prefer a round of golf at the beautiful and challenging Laguna Phuket Golf Club, a dinner cruise on the limpid waters of Bang Tao Bay, or just lolling on the peaceful beaches, you will find this is truly hedonist heaven.
